HIP PAIN TREATMENT & RELIEF

Hip pain is one of the most common problems our podiatrists and physiotherapists treat at Hip To Toe. Misaligned feet lead to misaligned knees which lead to misaligned hips.

When the feet, knees and hips are misaligned, it can lead to uneven wear and tear in the hip socket, and this eventually leads to arthritic change and pain.

Our podiatry and physiotherapy treatment realigns the feet, knees and hips to help reduce your pain.

We have helped many clients avoid hip surgery by combining our podiatry and physiotherapy treatment with specialised exercises.

​If your goal is to get out of pain and avoid hip surgery, our Gold Coast podiatry and physiotherapy clinic in Arundel can help.

HOW TO STOP HIP PAIN?

​In order to stop your hip pain, we first need to accurately diagnose the cause of where your pain is coming from. If the problem is coming from misaligned joints, x-rays are the best way to identify which joints are out of alignment.

Our podiatry and physiotherapy treatment aims to gently move your joints back into alignment, without using external support like orthotics. We combine this with podiatry and physiotherapy exercises to hold your joints in their newly realigned position.

The Hip Structure

Hip pain Gold CoastThe Hip is a ball and socket joint.

This means it is designed to move in all directions to allow the leg to adapt to the terrain that we are walking or running on.

To be able to sit, squat, kneel and stand requires the ball and socket to move smoothly.

If the hip is not able to move smoothly, it can lead to an inefficient walking style, compensation, and pain.

What causes misaligned hips?

MISALIGNED FEET LEAD TO MISALIGNED HIPS

These are the x-rays of the hips of a 41 year old female who had both hip joints replaced:

And these are the x-rays of their feet

The x-rays show:

  • The left foot has significantly different angles than the right foot
  • The arch has dropped on both feet
  • There are bunions on both feet
  • There are spurs on the hips
  • There is severe arthritis of the hips
  • Both hips have been replaced

The misalignment led to years of uneven wear and tear, which resulted in the hips needing replacement.

Even after her hip replacements, this lady was still in a lot of pain. This is because the underlying cause of the problem had not been treated.

At Hip To Toe, our podiatrists and physiotherapists treated the cause (the misaligned feet, knees and hips) and not just the symptoms in order to improve movement and reduce your pain.

Our podiatry treatment meant there was no further hip surgery and no orthotics required by this lady.
